On plastic surgery, she said, "I would love it if nobody knew how old I am, but those days are gone. Plastic surgery? I’m not going to say never, but I don’t think so. I think I may have had enough needles poking me when I had my fertility treatment to last a lifetime. But you never know."

As she aged, Hunt shifted her focus from maintaining her youth to staying active by choice. "I had my run in the ‘80s about being really worried about how I looked. Everybody was more fit, or more thin, and I maxed out on worrying about it," she admitted.
